Improvements to contacts, orange X in fields and in search

Post by GreatLakes » Sun Jan 12, 2014 11:05 pm

Dan, I applaud improvements to contacts section. It really makes it more useful. I noticed in the 10.2 beta that there is a large orange X in a field after adding data, for example home phone. I figured out that clicking on orange X hides this field while adding other phone numbers. I suggest adding a hover description above orange X to indicate it means to hide field, not to clear it.

My initial confusion was because the large X in the search box actually clears the entry for the search box, whereas the X in contact fields means to hide from view. Hover over the X in search bar could say "clear" to explain further. Or the X in the contact area could have a different icon to "hide", maybe small hands over eyes. The icons for indicating anniversary and birthday are great.

In general I think icons could use improvement, but I realize how hard it is to pick and cram into a toolbar.

Hi GreatLakes, thank you for the feedback. The X button will delete the current row (not just hide it). I'll add a tooltip to the button to make this more clear. I'll also add tooltips to the other buttons while I'm at it.
